Day 2

It’s my second day at my new job and I still feel a ton of anxiety. I hardly slept last night and am dragging my feet this morning. Also, as soon as I woke up I was shaking and throwing up again. I’m under my blanket when I should be getting ready to head out. Sometimes I really wish I didn’t have this problem... it makes life so difficult. I just want to stay in bed today and not worry about anything anymore. Honestly, I feel like giving up.

You got the job even though you worried you wouldn't.

You made it through the first day...even though you thought you wouldn't.

You are a success even though you don't want to admit it.

You are a warrior. You beat your worries and fears.

You got this...part of you knows it.

Listen to that part.

I pulled up the app just to check on how you did with your new job. So pleased to hear that you made it through your first and second day. What an accomplishment! Even though you were scared and worried, you deep down knew you could do it and you did! Wish I could give you a hug. 🤗 Perhaps give yourself a little reward for each time you meet a goal? 🌺🌺🌺Hope to hear from you soon.

I just don’t really know how to reward myself. Maybe purchase a new book? Idk. Today actually went a little smoother. The morning anxiety just hasn’t completely gone away. I am starting to eat again. I drank some nutritional shakes to start getting somt in my stomach and I felt a lot better. I’m not sure how tomorrow will feel since they’re determining what’s going to happen to me & if I’m actually keeping the job.

The dollar store always has something small and cheap. Pair of silly socks maybe? 😜🧦

I’m happy you are drinking the nutrition shakes. Low blood sugar will make anyone feel terrible, so getting some nutrients is essential.

Thanks for checking in.

Don't stay in bed, gotta keep moving. Morning exercise is great way to get energized and clear mind. I've gone through the same anxiety at new job months ago, I would get constipated, heart race, teeth grinding, and sweaty. Unfortunately I let it get the best of me, jobless, and living with parents. Please keep fighting it's terrible feeling dependent on parents.
